The sequential property of the Rock Art in the Hail Region has included two components such as Jabal Umm Sigman at Jubbah, situated about 90 km northwest of the city of Hail, and Jabal Al-Major and Jabal Raat at Shuwaymis, nearly 250 km south of Hail. At Jabal Umm Sinman Jubbah, the forefathers of today’s Arabs left marks of their presence in numerous petroglyph pieces and engravings. Almost 10,000 years of human history within a valley with flowing water has recognized the plenty of petroglyphs and inscriptions within a landscape that once overlooked a freshwater lake and at Jabal Al-Manjor and Jabal Raat, Shuwaymis.

Together, these elements comprise the biggest and richest rock art complexes in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the wider region. The local environmental context and patterns of human settlement were altered by the developments of desertification from the mid-Holocene in these areas. So, these changes are articulated in the frequent petroglyph panels and rich inscriptions. The characteristics of the property include a large number of petroglyphs, inscriptions, archaeological features, and the environmental ...
... setting.

The rock art of Jabal Umm Sinman Jubbah and Jabal Al-Major and Jabal Raat near Shuwaymis have an extraordinarily great amount of petroglyphs, formed by using a range of skills with simple stone hammers against a background of gradual environmental decline, and are visually stunning expressions of the human artistic mastermind.
The rock art at Jabal Umm Sinman at Jubbah and Jabal Al-Major and Jabal Raat at Shuwaymis offer unique evidence to the challenges of past civilizations in reaction to environmental calamities. Furthermore, the petroglyphs at Shuwaymis provide a brilliant indication of a society that vanished, leaving behind an extremely detailed record of its survival.

The serial tactic is justified for this material and together components of the Rock Art of the Hail Region contain all the characteristics essential to express the Outstanding Universal Value. The borders of the components of the property are appropriate, and buffer zones have been recognized. The buffer zone of Jabal Umm Sinman has extended 1.0 to 1.5 km to the west and south to adequately protect the visual setting and views. Work to lessen the visual impacts on the setting of Jabal Umm Sinman are endorsed for the tall water tower and dam constructed by the Municipality of Jubbah.

Although vulnerabilities occur due to some threats from vandalism, development in the buffer zone and lack of preparedness for increased future tourism activity, yet components of the property have been broadly renowned and generally exhibit a good state of conservation. If you get a chance to visit the Saudi Kingdom through Islamic travel, so you should not miss such incredible rock art.

The diversity and a large number of petroglyphs are located within the components at Jabal Umm Sinman and Jabal Al-Manjor and Raat confirm the validity of the serial property and of each component. Moreover, all these have retained their original location, setting, materials, form, and design. However, the Saudi Kingdom and the Regional government of the Hail Region offer considerable resources for the protection of the two components of the property (Jabal Umm Sinman, Jabal Al-Manjor, and Jabal Raat).
